Christian 6 Months

I can't believe Christian has been in our lives for over 6 months now. Time is flying by. I feel like a blinked and he is already changing from my sweet little new born to a fully functioning baby with a lot of personality.

Here is what is new in his life:

-he started solid foods: not a big fan but will eat it. He likes squash and oatmeal not a fan of rice cereal. Also has tried: banana (yum), graham crackers (yum), veggie straws (double yum), carrots (ok), avacado (yum).
-he has been sitting up since he was about 5 1/2 months.
-rolls all over the house to get to whatever he wants. This has lead to some unusual hiding places including getting stuck under the couch and hiding behind the curtains.
-more baby talk, especially screeching just to hear his own voice. And he especially loves to talk loud during the music in church.
-he has 2 teeth on the bottom
-he loves his walker. By far his favorite toy and he knows how to manuer it. Think about that commercial of the baby in the walker running through the house.
-loves the remote to the TV
-hates being left by himself. He wants to be held all the time lately and he will throw a tantrum if he doesn't get his way. As soon as he is picked up the water works turn off and he is happy.
-sleeps through the night 9pm-7am and takes about 2 naps/day.
-loves the bathtub and the pool. I see lots of swimming in this little guy's future
-likes sitting in the sink while I get ready in the morning. He loves looking at himself and smiling his big open mouth smile.
-his skin looks better. Still some eczema but he seems to be growing out of it.
-he loves playing with Elizabeth and Jackson. Any time they pay attention to him, especially in the mornings he laughs and loves on them.
-He has a very smiley personality but doesn't laugh a lot unless he is being tickled or about to be tickled. Even then it is more of a machine gun laugh in short bursts then the belly splitting laugh.
-everything goes in his mouth. I am constantly on lego watch.





At his 6 month appointment he was 28" long (75%) and 18lbs (65%). I can't believe how much he has grown. My favorite parts are his chunky thighs and big brown eyes. And he still has a bald head, just like the other two.

Christian 6 months

Elizabeth 6 months
 Jackson 6 months

I have been blessed with the most beautiful babies and it seems like every baby gets more beautiful than the last. But that is just mom talking.
